Lexmark Introduces 5 New Inkjet Printers
Several of the new four-in-one, three-in-one and single-function inkjet printers, to be released later in 2007 will have wireless capabilities.Lexmark International announced April 17 that beginning in the second quarter of 2007, it will release its latest four-in-one, three-in-one and single-function inkjet printers. Lexmarks X4550 Wireless AIO (All-in-One), designed for home and office users, is a three-in-one printer with wireless capabilities, enabling users to work from anywhere in their office or homes while being able to print at speeds up to 26 ppm (pages per minute) black and 18 ppm color. "Consumers are embracing wireless networking with the rapid adoption of wireless notebook computers and wireless routers, but because of the high price of existing wireless printers and the complexity of use, consumers have been slow to adopt wireless printing," Najib Bahous, president of the Consumer Printer Division of Lexmark, said in a statement.
The X4550, which will be priced at $129.99, allows users to print borderless photos with or without a computer from digital memory card slots, USB flash drives or PictBridge compatible digital cameras, and features a one-touch color copier that copies at speeds of up to 17 ppm black and 11 ppm color. The AIO also includes the Lexmark Toolbar, which enables users to print what they need from the Web.
